The Maldives has quickly become one of the world's most sought-after destinations thanks to its stunning, bright blue waters; world-class diving and snorkeling; ultra-luxurious resorts; and exclusivity.
Located in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is made up of nearly 1,200 islands and 26 coral atolls making it unparalleled when it comes to sea life diversity.
It's a remote, tropical paradise, where most of the resorts are situated atop their own private island, giving guests the sense that they too are enjoying their own private escape. Getting to the Maldives is no easy feat, with the average flight from the United States lasting around 27 hours. Visitors land at Velana International Airport in Male and with just one more seaplane ride they're ready to start the vacation.
For an authentic Maldivian hideaway, guests can book a stay at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, a resort that's home to 151 stunning villas and suites; 12 award-winning restaurants and bars; and a variety of culturally inspired excursions and experiences.
The main island is linked by a 500-meter bridge to the larger Rangali-Finolhu Island, giving guests the option of two sets of amenities and facilities.
The Conrad Maldives sets itself apart from many of the region's luxury resorts in that it's home to many firsts. For starters, it was the first resort to showcase the overwater villas that the Maldives is now famous for.
When it comes to wine, it's home to the largest wine list in the area and the first underground wine cellar. And then there's Ithaa, the world's first-ever underwater restaurant, which boasts 180-degree views of the coral reef garden surrounding the restaurant. Meals come with ever-changing scenery that includes ravenous sharks, rays, turtles, schools of tropical fish and more.
The Golden State is ready to welcome travelers and tourists with a smattering of new experiences this summer, including new wildlife exhibits, art centers, historical tours and hotels.read more
